In 1851 a large nugget of gold, now known as the Kerr hundredweight, was discovered by Edward Hargarves near the current village which was named after him..
It was this find that sparked the great Australian Gold Rush. Between two and three thousand miners move though the area known as The Louisa Goldfields in search of their fortunes.
In 1852 the Church of England was established in Hargraves but I have been unable to find out when this current church was constructed.
